we know right now. president obama has declared states of emergency in several mid atlantic and northeastern states including maryland, new jersey, new york and connecticut. fema, the federal emergency management agency established emergency operations centers in those places to coordinate preparations and disaster relief. >>> hurricane sandy knocked out electricity to more than 5,000 customers in new jersey so far. officials warn that number will grow into the hundreds of thousands. >>> sandy is being blamed for 65 deaths in the caribbean, 51 in haiti where residents endured three days of constant rain. >>> just this morning, a 17-man crew was forced to abandon the hms bounty after getting caught in sandy's high seas off the coast of carolina. the coast guard says the members safely boarded two life rafts. >>> this storm is shaping up to be a travel nightmare. nearly 7,500 flights canceled in the northeast while amtrak suspended service in the northeast corridor. the show must go on for comedians jimmy fallon, jimmy kimmel. they're both saying they'll go ahead with tapings
's go to president obama right now. president obama: i just received a full briefing from our emergency response team at as well as fema and other agencies helpful in response and recovery efforts in the department of energy, department of transportation, the department of homeland security and the department of health and human services. obviously everybody is aware this point that this will be a big and powerful storm. all across eastern seaboard everybody is taking the appropriate preparations. i've spoken to all the governors in all these states, they have issued emergency declarations. they have been turned around quickly in the white house. we have pre-positioned assets so fema personnel are working closely with state and local governments making sure the food and water and emergency generation is available for those communities that will be hardest hit. we anticipate that the center of the storm will hit landfall sometime this evening, but because of the nature of this storm, we are certain that this is going to be a slow-moving process through a wide swath of the country. billio
, that is in part a disadvantage for president obama, but it's too hard to say right now. >> hogan, governor romney is continuing that cam taken to go forward in states not impacted by hurricane sandy. it was really interesting, joe scarborough and his observations this morning he made on "morning joe." take a listen. >> this was mitt romney's best weekend, and it stops. the momentum stops. you don't know how it freezes, but it's a new dynamic into the race and changes everything with with a week to go. >> let's talk about this. not only could this stall romney's momentum, but it also brings up something that mitt romney was forceful about during the primary debates. he sad voe indicated shutting down team na and letting states handle disaster relief. watching what's taking place with sandy, know we have 12 different states that declared states of emergency and also the district, washington, d.c., does this pose a problem for mitt romney if he gets questioned on his belief about fema and tries to go to some places to look presidential post-sandy, is that an issue for him? >> that's a great point, t
. in that case ground game is crucial. i think you're right in ohio ground game is going to favor obama. i think the only silver lining is that in 2008 obama won 22 of ohio's 88 counties making it clear that the population battle over the cities is really what's important. so having the political offices all over the state might not actually be the determining factor, but i think -- look, i'll be honest. i have ohio going blue in my electoral map. >> look, it's creditical to oba and the campaign they win this ground game. you see evidence in the polls of republicans on the whole are more motivated to throw out barack obama than democrats on the whole are to re-elect him. that doesn't mean there aren't lots of motivated democrats out there. they yell at me on twitter. you get over 90% from republicans a lot. it's not that high from democrats. you know what makes me think of micha michael dukakis? everything. ohio in particular. something interesting in ohio and to understand you have to think p about the dukakis lae election in 1988. this was a 40-state landslide for george bush sr. in 1988. in t
years of obama. wow. you see folks on the left dismissing the value of this. on the right they'll make a big deal about it. i came upon a fun study from 2008. brown university economists found that when moderate papers endorse they're seen as mort credible. when a partisan paper does it, not so much. when the chicago sun times and "denver post" endorsed kerry and bush, the study found 3% of readers switched voting allegiance. they flipped their allegiances in 2000. i have to say, i think an interesting number that matters is when you compare the endorsement numbers, obama has 34 endorsement from major, significant papers. romney has 27. look at the circulation of those endorsements. obama's total just over 9 million readers. >> 27? >> and mitt romney is at 27 and not 7. his total circulation just under 5 million. so i don't know that this is a scientific reading of those numbers, but you have to imagine 9 million readers reading obama endorsement, 5 million readers reading romney. i have to imagine that ends up as a net plus for obama somewhere down the line. let's just quickly ask "de
independent swing voters in iowa right now. the obama campaign says they are ahead in iowa right now. this could make some difference in the end, and it reinforces the argument that romney is making headway. he is best positioned to make the bipartisan compromises america needs. that echoes romney's message in these closing days. >> just over a week to go and it just got even more interesting. george stephanopoulos, thank you. george, by the way, has a huge show this morning. his guests include stephanie cutter from the obama campaign and the former house speaker newt gingrich. >>> now let's get a check of the morning's other top news. there is other news happening. >> hi, good morning, everyone. >>> another potential attack on a u.s. embassy may have been thwarted and police in indonesia say they have arrested 11 people suspected of planning attacks on a range of domestic and foreign targets in jakarta. mriz seized bombs, explosives and ammunition. >>> new details of the new york city nanny who allegedly killed two young children. friends and relatives of that nanny say that ortega
and president obama have canceled effe events in virginia. one big impact right now. it's going to expect their effort to get out the vote. early voting didn't have much effect on early voting in florida yesterday. it could complicate it in virginia and ohio. then finally, is this storm as bad as it seems to be right now, it could block out the closing arguments of these candidates. >> i wonder if you're the president how do you manage campaigning, because his job is truly on the line here with governing and imagine perhaps a large disaster. >> he's returning to the white house tomorrow afternoon, as i said, cancelling some events. the biggest problem for the president right now, if he makes any mishandling of this storm could affect the final days of this race. >> in nonweather news, a bit of surprise, the des moines register, the largest newspaper endorsed romney. >> iowa is a key state. it's part of barack obama's mid western fire wall. >> he needs to win iowa, wisconsin and ohio. the obama campaign said they're ahead in iowa right now, this could make some difference in the end and it
think the best thing president obama can do right now is exactly what he's doing, which is suspend some of the campaign events and be in the white house, be in charge. i want to give him kudos on one thing, which is the administrative of fema, craig fugate, is a man who worked here in florida in charge of emergency management services in florida, well-known to floridians, he's now -- he worked under jeb bush in florida as a real pro. i think president obama deserves points for having chosen somebody that is a professional instead of a political crony. but it is very important. it can make or break careers. there are points where politics and hurricanes meet and it can help or they can collide. and they can break careers. we all remember governor blanco in louisiana, what a disaster that was. >> yeah. we remember all of that. so, listen, a republican praising the president, a democrat, it happened here on cnn. lz, let's stick with the ground game here. because we are talking about the imaginary scenarios for after disaster happens. what happens after, can people get to the polls? will th
because if it's sunday, it's "meet the press." >>> developing right now on "first look." complete details moments away. >>> the storm is drastically changing president obama and mitt romney's campaign plans with eight days before america votes. >>> the san francisco giants are world series champions. i'm veronica de la cruz. this is "first look" on msnbc. >>> this is d-day with hurricane sandy. waves are growing ever more om nis and the threat of storm surges from 4 to 11 feet high. this is the scene about 100 miles north of boston. hundreds of thousands have been told to evacuate in coastal a areas all the way into new england. the storm claimed 65 lives in the caribbean and has the potential to paralyze new york and other big cities. early this morning president obama has signed emergency declarations for connecticut, pennsylvania and rhode island, clearing the way for help from fema. let's get right to bill karins who has the latest forecast. what do you have? >> the storm has strengthened instead of 75 so that's very impressive that this storm continues to lower its pressure, even goi
family. so i would like to see president obama go right back to health care. and to strengthen what we've got so far. and you will always have intensified effort to create jobs in america. that's -- no matter who wins the election that will have to be the focus, but i think for president obama, i think health care again, and i think immigration. >> i don't have children, have you children. i have nieces and nephews, i want them to be able to go to college and have a great life. so our definition of the american dream, greatly varied, some people want to live on the upper east side. other people just want a nice house in the suburbs with a great school that they can send their kids to that's a public school, but i don't have to shell out 20 grand a year for kindergarten. so the american dream has many definitions, but i think whomever is elected, certainly has to build a confidence in our country again that it is attainable, not for a select few. >> i have strong views, i think the biggest problem in the history is race, we have whatever we have now, which isn't so great. we have to sol
somehow -- >> you would think -- because obama is appearing presidential. he is not campaigning right now, he is standing at the podium in the west wing participating. >> but there is still a contingent who thinks he is using his kenyan voodoo power to cause this storm. >> yeah. >> of course people without power aren't going to be able to necessarily -- you can use your mobile device perhaps -- >> assuming it is a charged. >> exactly. and you have your internet connection which is probably down, your television is probably down you're going to have to use some sort of battery-powered radio to get information. >> could you come up with a battery powered radio. >> i own one. because i'm a florida native and we are trained from birth down there to be prepared for hurricanes. >> okay. >> i'm not sure i do anymore have a battery powered radio. >> wow, maybe i should get one. we live in earthquake company -- >> you can go to restoration hardware and get one of those crank ones -- >> yeah. they don't look like they cost that much -- >> well it's restoration hardware. >
christie, and this man said that obama was doing an outstanding job. >> elections are right around the corner next week, and campaigns have resumed. it is a difficult question to ask, but who has actually profited from the situation? >> for mitt romney, it is a difficult situation because national disaster times are times when politics are supposed to be put aside, so campaigning too early might hurt him, but it is the only thing he can do because he does not have any form of public office. that is why the campaign is putting him back up to speed on wednesday. he already had a campaign stop. for president obama, it is exactly the contrary because every day he seems to be commander-in-chief is better for him where he can do something as a president. his campaign management is taking its time to put him back on the trail, but pundits agree that the whole situation probably helped president obama more than it helped mitt romney. to what extent is quite unclear still. >> thanks for joining us. we will have a report about the election campaign in a little bit. >> airports in new york an
. look at ohio. right now the obama campaign has 140 field offices and the romney campaign has a third of that. those are long-early term relationships with the voters. soon after the president was elected they opened their first field office in ohio and have been there for years at this point. it translates to great advantages in early voting and it means we have seen surges from african-american and latino communities and it means they have a greater number of volunteers as well. >> i wonder about voter annoyance by oversaturation. it is everywhere. my television, my radio, i get e-mails. i have gotten telephone calls. i guess they think i am ypped or fair and balanced. i am fair and balanced. at some point you say if you contact me one more time i am not voting for you. >> that's what people say. they are frustrated. they can't sit through dinner without the phone ringing or watch television without six negative attack ads. they can't even go through their mail. even saturday afternoon people are knocking on their door. that's where volunteers and people that live in the community a
voters go to the polls. >> we have seen some of the effect. both governor romney and president obama have canceled events in virginia. one big impact right now. also, it's going to effect their effort to get out the vote. didn't have much effect on early voting in florida yesterday. it could complicate it in virginia and ohio. two other key states that will impacted. then finally, is this storm as bad as it seems to be right now, it could block out the closing arguments of these candidates. in the last nine days. >> in some ways this is the real october surprise. i wonder, if you're the president how do you manage campaigning, because his job is truly on the line here with governing and imagine perhaps a large disaster. >> you show that you're in touch. the president was already talking to the federal emergency management agency. he's returning to the white house tomorrow afternoon, as i said, cancelling some events. the biggest problem for the president right now, if he makes any mishandling of this storm could affect the final days of this race. more than any other factor. >> in nonweat
bless you and god bless the united states of america. >> all right, president barack obama in new hampshire calling his promise to america steady and strong. spelling out his accomplishments and then reaffirming his pledges for the next four years. we have our political team in place as well. brianna keilar is traveling with the president, and we'll check in with her right after this. introducing the new 13-inch macbook pro, ♪ with the stunning retina display. ♪ for the pro in all of us. our boys. husband's sister's boys. play cousins. i'm just gettin' started. woo!

romney said... and what his plan would do. president obama: i'm barack obama and... i approve this message. >>> right now at 11:00, states of emergency declared in maryland, virginia and the district as millions along the east coast brace for impact. sandy could bring nearly a foot of rain, high winds and snow. >> also that monster storm is already having a major impact on the campaign trail. both sides have canceled weekend event in virginia beach. >> tonight, all eyes are on sandy. the storm could be one for the record books and we have it covered. >> erica gonzalez has evacuations along the beaches. the local storm preparations but first, chief meteorologist with the latest. >> we look at the latest track right now, what is th is going to show you, this storm still a hurricane with winds of 75 miles an hour to the north at about 7 miles per hour. the pressure is down just a ttle bit. and it is going to continue on that northerly track. as it does that, it will then shift out to sea, as we have been talking about, becoming a tropical storm. back it hurricane potentially and
right now. but right now president obama is ahead in the state whereas mitt romney is ahead nationally. >> geraldo: erin, quickly, i've got 30 seconds, florida has romney over obama by 1 1/2, more or less. virginia has romney obama tied. ohio has obama over romney 48 funny 2 to 46.3, wisconsin has obama over romney by 2.3 percentage points so ladies and gentlemen, erin says that the governor is on track to win the popular vote, but as of right now, the president looks likes he's ahead in the electoral college. we have to take a break and we'll continue our special coverage of the storm, and the political storm and a bit later benghazi-gate. don't go anywhere, the wind is beginning to pick up here in manhattan. 4g lte is the fastest. so, which supeast 4g lte service would yochoose, based on this chart ? don't rush into it, i'm not looking for the fastest answer. obviously verizon. okay, i have a different chart. going that way, does that make a difference ? look at verizon. it's so much more than the other ones. so what if we just changed the format altogether ? isn't that the exact sa
important ohio is. president obama holding a four-point lead in this new poll, slightly outside the margin of error and significantly right at the crucial 50% mark. so the question is, what is driving the numbers in ohio right now? chief national correspondent john king has some answers. >> well, anderson, that narrow ohio lead for the president is within the poll's sampling error but it is yet another poll showing the president with a small persistent lead in the state of ohio. let's take a closer look at why it is happening in this state that is so important in the pick for president. here's the main reason right here. governor romney gets the republicans. the president gets the democrats but at the moment, in our survey, the president has a narrow lead among ohio voters who define themselves as independents. that is the battleground in a big battleground state, if you win the independents you are likely to win. governor romney close but the president with an important edge among independent voters. there's also an age divide, if you look at likely voters in ohio. among voters under the
to really hurt president obama if it comes to that. but kristen's right, this is about the margins here. if north carolina, for example, was a good example in 2008. you know, obama won the youth vote nationally by 66%. in north carolina, he won it by 74% and he only won the state by 14,000 votes. so if he had won a similar share of north carolina as nationally, he would have lost north carolina. so that's why you see in a state like north carolina, for example, and ohio, the campaign being so aggressive with mobilization efforts on campuses because there's a cushion there, i don't think it will swing the election one way or the other on a macro level, but just around the edges. >> kristen, do you think the demographics shifts this cycle, particularly the increase in young latino voters will make a big difference? >> i think that you can increasingly not separate out the issues of young voters and the issues of the changing demographics in this country. significantly fewer young voters were white than older voters. the demographic shifts are showing up in this group. but you're still see
. it quotes president obama and governor romney yesterday but what do you think about how it works right now? caller: well, i forgot to tell you, that is what my mother said. she said we should have had -- the federal government should have had shelter and aid for the people that were fleeing. i agree with her there. the government should be involved. but on the outskirts to begin with. because they don't know what is happening on the inside lines. host: were you watching the mayors and governors yesterday as they held press conferences? >> you know what? my mom is fixated on it and i saw it for a couple of days. but when the storms started coming in and today i looked for a couple of secrets and saw one inch of rain and thought i'm not going to get caught up in it. but i do have feelings for the folks. i hope all of their property and family and friends are safe. host: a little more from the piece in the "washington post." congress has broadened fema's authority so it can respond in advance of major storms instead of waiting for governors to request aid after a disaster strikes the measures
and chad, right now the advisory wires telling us president obama will return to the white house following in event in orlando on monday to monitor hurricane sandy. and we're not sure if he's going to make any more k35i7b events. u.s. government has nonemergency federal workers granted administrative leave on monday due to hurricane. president obama declared a state of emergency for the commonwealth of massachusetts as a result of hurricane sandy. u.s. federal offices in d.c. closed. philadelphia, the southeast pennsylvania transit authority, septa as its called, will suspend all services at the end of the sunday service. listening, they're not playing around, if you're in any of these areas, you need to listen to what your officials are telling us. george howell is in kill devil hills, north carolina. george, you have been out there all day. tell me how the weather has intensified. >> reporter: don, i can tell you right now we are actually getting a break in the wind. the winds are dying down a bit, but they are also shifting. we can tell that's happening, and that strong rain is backing
needed right now in washington that people think is broken. and president obama who has glossy new brochure, when you look inside it is more of the same. bill: when you think about what the obama team did in 2008, i mean do you have to, do you have to go well beyond the numbers of 2004? and because when you talk about these voters who voted for the president four years ago and they have been disillusioned and perhaps not supporting him now, can you point to examples or concrete evidence where the obama supporters of 2008 have left him now? >> i can and it's the early voting numbers that are coming in. looks like we are overperforming in all the early voting and democrats are underperforming as compared to 2008. and we expected early voting to go more towards democrats because that is what happened in 2008. democrats like to vote early. republicans like to vote on election day. despite that we've been able to increase our numbers significantly and their numbers are down. so i think there is evidence there is less enthusiasm on their side. some of these obama supporters last time hav
. hillary clinton and president obama come out and try to set the record straight. right now and not spin everything. we don't -- we don't want the details. we just want answers and want accountability and want people to resign if they have to. >> brian: scott, two quick points to get to in a minute. real quick, when you hear the secretary of defense say i didn't want to put my guys into harm's way in uncertain situation, you are a navy seal. don't you always go into uncertain situations? >> if i got the call right now, right now to go to libya or anywhere else to help folks and they needed me, i would be there right now. every single military member, cia folks, state department guys, security, anybody would step up to the plate and run out there in harm's way to save fell will he americans. there is no doubt about it. >> brian: you think he was disingenuous when he said that because you and delta force and guys like you do this all the time? >> folks like us and that are out there right now. that's what we do. that's what we would do. i think it was a misleading statement at best. >> bri
said, we are back in earnest right now on the campaign trail. president obama will be going to wisconsin, colorado, nevada today. mitt romney in the state of virginia. and of course, joe biden, paul ryan, bill clinton, marco rubio, and many others fanned out across the country right now. as you said, we are in the closing days of this very, very tense campaign. >> it really was a remarkable picture of the president and the new jersey governor, and i think a refreshingly bipartisan picture to a lot of americans. mark preston, live in washington, always great to see you. thanks for being here this morning. at the bottom of the hour, we'll get to analysis of the campaign's final days from our political experts in residents. cnn contributor and republican strategist ana navarro and richard socarides and former senior adviser to president clinton. and in just five days, five days, it will finally be election night in america. cnn's live election coverage will begin at 6:00 p.m. eastern time. >>> and in sandy's aftermath, people in hoboken, new jersey are trapped in a nasty flood.
for the candidates. the race right now is as tight as it comes. the latest poll has romney at 48%, president obama at 47%. so essentially we're talking about a dead heat. cnn political editor paul joins me now with more. he's live in pensacola, florida, one of the critical swing states in this election. mitt romney is headed your way today in hopes of winning over undecided voters there, paul. but how close is it politically in the sunshine state right now? >> reporter: it is very close in the sunshine state. in fact, take a look at this, christi. this is the most recent poll we did about a week ago. you can't get much closer among likely voters. mitt romney with a one-point edge, but that's all tied up in the sampling error. this is the first of three stops today for mitt romney across the state. he'll be campaigning with marco rubio, the popular freshman senator here in florida. we had this up on our website cnn.com. you can see how much attention florida is getting. both the candidates made well over 20 trips each here to the sunshine state since the start of the general election back in april.
will be like under president obama by seeing what it is like right now. the course he has put us on, higher taxes, obamacare, cutting medicare by $716 billion, having in place a series of taxes, regulatory policies that make it harder for a small business to start, that ends up hurting and you your family. this is an election about big things, meaning whether we will have energy independence, whether america's military is strong and whether our economy will lead the world. but it is also a matter of big things in your life, in your homes. if you are a senior, friends, or, perhaps, you are caring for a senior in your home and if president obama were re-elected and you developed a medical condition that requires a medical specialist and the call the office of the specialist and the appointment secretary says, under obamacare, i'm sorry we are not taking anymore medicare patients because of the cuts that were put on medicare bio-- by obamacare, because of the cuts, half the doctors surveyed say they will not take any more patients on medicare so that is why we will repeal obamacare. and if you
been saying from the beginning. let's find out as we do every week where that stands right now. joining me is karl rove, former bush senior advisor in austin, texas. joining me from washington, democratic strategist joe trippi. look at the map. you see the info on the key. red, romney. blue, obama. then pinkish is lean romney. light blue is lean obama. the yellow states those are tossup states within the margin of error. reminder this is all based, this map you are looking at polls in the last two weeks. what has changed since last week. the last time we talked? >> first, we have now, record number of state level polls, 69 last week. 28 states. 12 states showed movement to romney and nine states toward obama. but only two states changed the status. one of the smallest numbers we've seen wince bebegan this in april. one not a surprise. tennessee state went from lean romney to solid romney. other is surprise. michigan, battleground state went from lean obama to tos tossup. that is a big shift of 18 electoral college votes. >> bret: of those, michigan a big -- >> michigan is a big, that is
the packers. he is a safety. what does the safety do? the safety protects against long passes -- that's right, the hail mary. that's something that the obama campaign is trying to do here in wisconsin. >> that makes me wonder, that long line behind you, are they waiting to see charles woodson or president obama? >> reporter: you know, it's hard to tell. but, yeah, i think the crowd is here to see both of them. obviously this is a crowd of supporters of president obama. very dedicated, i have to say. it is freezing cold here. and they are lined up. there is a ton of people you can't even see off camera. and they are ready for this event, carol. >> they're used to the cold. brianna keilar, thanks so much. >>> mitt romney already back on the campaign trail. he will hold three different rallies in virginia, beginning next hour in roanoke and then later in verge yain beach and doswell. he canceled because of superstorm sandy. at times yesterday during his visit in florida he used a softer tone in his campaign message. >> that's one of the great characteristics of our people. we come together in ti
